My wife is positive and I’m negative, how is this possible?
I’ve been married to my wife for three years, I’ve just found out that she’s HIV positive and has been the whole time we’ve been married. I’ve had a test and it’s negative, what should I do now?
Thanks for your email.
There are many reasons why you’re negative. If your wife is taking ARVs and her viral load is undetectable, there’s no risk to you, please see here:
If your wife isn’t taking medication or her viral load is detectable, you’ve basically been lucky. Please see Q5 here: https://i-base.info/qa/what-are-the-most-asked-questions
With regards to what should you do, for me to be able to answer that question I’ll need more detail. If you’re asking if it’s possible to be in a relationship with someone who is positive, the answer is yes.
